The Navigator plies the Indian Ocean and beyond 21-02-2010 6-9pm

Written by on February 21, 2010

As promised on the show last week i am going to venture into the Indian Ocean and play music form Reunion, Madagascar, Mauritius, Zanzibar, Seychelles, Comores and Mayotte. The ultimate of a melting pot of cultures. Africa to the west and the Middle East and Asia to the north. There even is a whiff of the Pacific in Madagascar.

Most songs are from the more than excellent "Rough Guide To" series


I was planning to finish the journey in Myanmar (Burma) to pay tribute to the plight of the people, who are suffering under the hardline rule of the generals and the continuous imprisonment of the opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi. Got a bit of headwind, so i leave that till next week
